NASA just spotted a massive hole growing on the sun — here’s what it means (Video)

This imagery of the sun captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory from May 17-19, 2016, shows a giant dark area on the star’s upper half, known as a coronal hole. Coronal holes are low-density regions of the sun’s atmosphere, known as the corona. Because they contain little solar material, they have lower temperatures and thus appear much darker than their surroundings. Coronal holes are visible in certain types of extreme ultraviolet light, which is typically invisible to our eyes, but is colorized here in purple for easy viewing.

These coronal holes are important to understanding the space environment around Earth through which our technology and astronauts travel. Coronal holes are the source of a high-speed wind of solar particles that streams off the sun some three times faster than the slower wind elsewhere. While it’s unclear what causes coronal holes, they correlate to areas on the sun where magnetic fields soar up and away, without looping back down to the surface, as they do elsewhere.

  1. I’m not sure if this is related or the same but we also watch the sun due to Coranal Mass Ejections (CMEs). This is related to the magnetic field lines which are always twisted on the Sun. When this lines break off the send massive energy out from the sun and if they were to directly hit us, it would ruin anything electrically based for unknown period of time.

  2. Actually the they happen often, but the bigger the hole the bigger the magnetic field. The field loops from one end of the hole to the opposite side of it and to stretches out into space. Now when it breaks, and it will break, well that’s where solar flare come from. And if it’s pointing towards Earth, well that solar flare would sends us back to the Stone age.

    • Good i hope it happens so we can go back to nature and respect pur planet and live in a more healthier environment without pollution. I know every time i go outside i cant help but wonder how much chemical and chemtrails fallout i am breathing in.
